Guh, I soooooo can’t wait for upcoming MBC Wed-Thurs drama W: Two Worlds, completely and utterly due to my love for leading man Lee Jong Seok. He’s not the best actor, or the best looking, but for that ephemeral indescribable element he’s just won my heart and I love everything he’s done. The first official stills are out for W showing Lee Jong Seok’s mysterious leading man from one of the two universes, which will cross paths with Han Hyo Joo’s doctor character from another universe.
I’m trying to not dive too much into the details because this drama feels like the element of narrative surprise will be part of the enjoyment. K-ent is pointing out how the two star besties of Lee Jong Seok and Kim Woo Bin will be battling head on for ratings this July, but Uncontrollably Fond airs July 6th whereas W doesn’t arrive until July 20th, giving it a nice two week head start to build up a lead. When dramas don’t premiere on the same date it’s hard to gauge actual popularity and it ends up being whichever story and execution is superior that ropes in the viewers.
